Aug-06-14  achieve: Ha! - nice exchange sequence to simplify to BvN and pawns on the wrong color!

Good vision and technique from Anish.

Aug-09-14  pmukerji: To me it looks like Girl drops a knight and likely the game if Gelfand plays 28... Qxc6. I'm barely a beginner so might be missing something?

29. dxc6.

Aug-09-14  pmukerji: and 29. Rxd1#
Aug-09-14  pmukerji: My bad...didn't notice the other rook...sorry!
Aug-16-14  Whitehat1963: I imagine that after 36...a5, Gelfand might have thought his chances for at least a draw looked pretty good: rook and bishop v. rook and knight, pawns on both sides of the board. The simplifying 37 Rxd8+ must have appeared as though it was playing into his hands. Alas, it was the beginning of the end. Giri had seen far deeper.
